Unmanned Aircraft Systems
The safe and secure integration of UAS, or drones, into the national airspace system and across critical infrastructure organizations is essential to maintain the security and resilience of our national critical functions.
A whole-of-government approach is required to incorporate cybersecurity and physical security into the policies and procedures that support secure drone operations, reliable threat discrimination through air domain awareness, and the effective mitigation of credible threats to national security and public safety.
CISA assists federal, private sector, and state, local, tribal, and territorial partners in managing cyber and physical risks posed by drones to our nation’s critical infrastructure.
This is achieved by maintaining effective public-private partnerships dedicated to sharing threat and vulnerability information, providing risk mitigation guidance, building security capacity at the local level, and coordinating federal capabilities to counter credible drone threats.
